It's a HUGE lawn surrounded by hedges on three sides and a darling white school building on the other. It's the school lawn for the community school in Seaside and is used for special events, such as receptions and movies as well. Because the lawn is so big and our party won't even come close filling the place, we're going to have croquet and bocce/petanque. We'll also probably have a dj or band plus a dance floor, depending on how many people actually come. We probably won't have a band for 20 people, but 45-50 would be a great size to justify the extra expense of music and a dance floor.
Anyway...here's our reception venue, what do you think? I think it'll be perfect for the Southern luxe lawn party I'm going for. Think waiters with trays of champagne serving people playing croquet and me in this dress and How in some seersucker. Yumm-o!
